Fins (Short Film Screenplay)


An old man, grieving the loss of his wife, meets a mythological creature on the beach while out walking - a bond is formed between them and they help each other to see the beauty of their different worlds.

With sweet relationships, funny moments, plus heart wrenching lines, "Fins" is a really exciting project that needs to be made!

With a limited cast number and locations, plus an ambitious amphibian costume idea - this script is one that will charm you all the way to the last page.

Our Review:

How most of us would have wished and wanted to meet, a creature or two that would pop out and surprise us. The script Fins tells the story of one of the most spoken mythical creature, the Mermaids. Some times it doesn't matter what's said is it's true or not, but all that matters is how well it's said. Fins is one such story that expands the possibility of humans to connect with nature beyond our imagination. Fins is a playful script that narrates the story of a grieving elderly man, his family and his new found friendship, which sees mythical figure from fairy tales living in the contemporary society.
